TOM Barkhuizen says he is enjoying life at Hereford United despite the club struggling at the wrong end of League Two.

The forward is on loan from Championship club Blackpool and has already scored twice for the Bulls, in the 3-1 defeat at Shrewsbury and 4-1 loss against Bournemouth in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

He will be hoping to add to that tally when Hereford take on Oxford United at Edgar Street today (3pm) bidding to move clear of the relegation zone.

Barkhuizen, 18, admits the players are under pressure but says boss Jamie Pitman is keeping them focused.

He said: “I am just trying to play my own game. I’ve not played in a 4-4-2 formation for several years and I’ve come here and Pits has told me to play wide out right and I’m enjoying it.

“I’m running with the ball and linking up with the other players. They know my game and I know theirs so it’s working really well.

“Jamie has kept our spirits high as we’re all under pressure. We’ve been working hard but there has been a bit of fun in training too.”
